Sharing mail folders in Outlook

It is possible to share a mail folder. The person who owns the folder gives a authorization to a colleague. This colleague has to add the folder manually once.

  • Open Outlook and go to your calendar.
  • Give your colleague rights to your account.
    You can grant rights by right-clicking on the mailbox itself (in this case voorbeeld [at] ru.nl) and then 'Folder permissions'. It is sufficient to select only the 'Show folder' checkbox for the colleague in question.
  • Go to your mail and right-click on the folder you want to share (e.g. 'Inbox'), then choose 'Properties' and the 'Permissions' tab.
